Due to a planned power outage on Friday, 1/14, between 8am-1pm PST, some services may be impacted.
An audio recording (thanks to Regina) of an NS gathering at David's house, around an outside fire, on July 4th. Pierre and Eldar discuss greater and greater wholes, until the dialogue itself causes Eldar to enter into an experience of Mind (around 0:47:00 or so) so intense that he passes out (or IN!) and can no longer participate. (A discussion of his state is taken up two days later at our Saturday gathering.). Later, Bradley, Regina, JeffL, Barbara, and Jed participate.
JulieH has made a transcript of this evening's talk. It is available on this page, in the Download Options menu, in both EPUB and PDF formats. Thank you, Julie!
I was not there with good equipment that night. This was an outside gathering using a smaller personal recorder of Regina's which was not always within close range of Pierre's mouth during many loud fireworks. Some of the first hour of conversation is lost because of these factors. I could only bump up the volume a little bit in editing. Good headphones will help you catch more of the dialogue. Somewhere just after the 1st hour, everyone moves inside, which makes the dialogue easier to follow from that point on. Otherwise, I removed nothing from Regina's recording, so there will be about 10 minutes around the 1st hour, before everyone moves inside, where Pierre goes in for a beer, and not a whole lot of significant philosophical conversation takes place.

We'd love it if you chose to 'Make this a monthly donation', as well -- rather than just one-time -- in whatever small amount is within your regular monthly budget.
